Varicose Vein Treatment in Long Island
Varicose Veins are enlarged, bulging veins caused by the blood flowing in the wrong direction. These veins can not only be physically painful, they can also be aesthetically embarrassing.
When varicose veins are left untreated, they can worsen and lead to venous leg ulcers. Most of our ulcer patients notice them near the inside of the ankle or anywhere below the knee. You may not have even realized you had varicose veins when a venous leg ulcer occurs. If you have a painful wound on a swollen leg that is red, open, draining and not healing, you may be dealing with a venous leg ulcer.
An Ambulatory Phlebectomy is one of the vein reduction surgery procedures that removes unnecessary varicose veins through small incisions.
Over the past year, our varicose specialist, Dr. Gallagher has developed a new technique for performing Ambulatory Phlebectomy. By using acupuncture needles to stabilize a patient’s varicose veins, our vein surgeon has completely eliminated the need to make incisions to remove the veins. All veins can be removed through a small needle puncture, making the procedure virtually scar free. He has also extended this technique when performing Endovenous Laser Ablation.
Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLT), is a varicose treatment procedure approved by the FDA. It is a procedure used specifically to treat deep varicose veins. This varicose specialist treatment works with the use of an activated laser fiber to close down the affected vein. EVLT has been shown to have a 98% success rate for treating varicose veins.
At our vein clinic, our vein specialist has a great amount of experience with this procedure, and trains other physicians to utilize the laser and perform these vein surgery procedures.
The Venefit Procedure allows for a quick, comfortable recovery and a return to everday activitied, while also improving the appearance of varicose veins. It is the only minimally invasive segmental radiofrequency ablation treatment that utilizes radiofrequency energy to provide an even and uniform heat to contract the collagen in the vein walls, causing them to collapse and seal. Once a leg vein is closed, blood flow is redirected to healthy veins.
